COMPTECH Technology Advisory Board (TAB)


Technology Advisory Board (TAB) oversees and guides the activities of COMPTECH. The Board is comprised of synchrotron technology experts, members of the central high-pressure facilities (e.g. HPCAT, GSECARS), managers of the other COMPRES facilities (ALS, NSLS) and mineral physics researchers representing a cross-section of the COMPRES community. President of COMPRES as well as chairs of the two standing committees serve as extra official members of the TAB. TAB meets 3-4 times per year through teleconferencing to discuss the activities and progress of the project as well as to plan future initiatives and actions.
